    Greetings to all Latinists,

    Today I would like the phrase on the thread title to be translated into Modern Latin if possible. I would like to use this quote as a motto so it is quite an important phrase,

    Thank you,

    Why do you need ‘Modern Latin’ if you’ve got the immortal classics aut cum scuto, aut in scuto, which seems to have the original ἢ τὰν ἢ ἐπὶ τᾶς.
    Gregorius Textor, J.M, Adrian and 2 others like this.

    I share the same sentiment as Quasus.

    Since our colleague wishes "modern latin"; perhaps something along potius mori quam recedere.

    Greetings Quasus,
    You are quite right with that,
    Thank you,
